Speaking to Newry Times, Loughran said, “This has become an annual event in Newtownhamilton due to its huge success over the last number of years.

“Volunteers have been working tirelessly to promote this year’s event which includes a half marathon, a 10 mile run and a 10 mile walk.

“I would urge people in the village and the wider South Armagh area to come out and support the run and make it the biggest to date.
